More news emerging unfortunately none of it toasting appliance related.
It seems that Masinga's beloved BMW was repossesed 2 years ago and he now has to rely on Taxi's, and the report says he can often be found criss-crossing taxi ranks?? (but he often eschews this relative luxury which must make a fair size hole in the cash-haul he scored from his toaster sales), and he has been known increasingly to ask friends for lifts whenever he needs to go into town.
In other news it seems he has enraged the brothers he shares a room with in his dead mothers house, by bringing young girls back. A habit which inexplicably may have contributed to his bitter 2005 divorce.
Apparently one of these youngsters has had her status as a nubile nymph destroyed by pregnancy. We can only speculate who deflowered her but it seems that the "up-stick lovely" ahem... visits the Masinga household from time to time.
A source speculated (as you would obviously) that as her father owns a pre-owned car dealership surely they could sponsor Philo with a small car ...... ?? (WTF Im surprised he hasnt killed our Philo personally rather than solve his transportation issues.. PS I said that, not a source)
Apparently Phil has even compounded his strange behaviour by greeting his new township neighbours in the street with the phrase... Greetings wise elder .... when normally in the past he would not have made eye contact with such lowly individuals.
It is not clear whether Baby Jake Matlala has been asked to comment at this stage, or if any of the toaster gains are still stashed away.
Some commentators are not moved by his plight, perhaps angry that the Petrol Stations Masinga used to own before his shocking fall from grace "didnt even have petrol at times" http://www.ziyawamag.com/%E2%80%9Ci-don%E2%80%99t-need-any-assistance-like-baby-jake-matlala%E2%80%9D-says-broke-phil-masinga/
And here is the back room he now resides in, his mother having luckily "croaked it" leaving him a refege from living rough with the brothers who hate him. Unfortunately none of the articles implicitly state how well(or otherwise) his toasting solutions are taken care of.
